This little Javanese girl is Talia.
She is eleven years old.
Her family has never had a lot of money for food.
But she can still have sweet, innocent fun using an empty shopping bag as a hat.
Praise the Lord.

Hidup-penghidupan kaum ‘tani – the life and livelihood of farmers.
Connected to the land.
Caring for the land.
Loving their land.
. Subur means fertile. Success follows on family farms

Simple village life has lessons for us all.
Usia tua bisa jadi indah – berdiam saja.
In the bosom of her family, this old Javanese lady is losing her faculties.
But she is not suffering.
She is loved.

Aussie Slim backs friendship with Indonesia, and our other near neighbours, as the only way to go for Australia.
Aussie Slim is a dinki-di Australian bloke.
Almost no one else in Australia has been able to tune into
my ideas about the cultural importance of building deep friendships and connections in our region as he has.
I reckon Aussie knows that when you put the strengths of Australian culture and values with the best of South-East And North-East Asian cultures and values, it is possible to come up with something even better than both.
